15.5/20 (87/100) Аромат спелых и засахаренных фруктов: яблоко, груша, лимон с тонами ментола и белого перца. Ощутимая кислотность. Приятное, но не сложное вино.

Enjoyable Assyrtiko, and one of the best. Grapefruit flavors mixed with tropical fruit.

A definite wild yeast funk leads the nose but then softens out to peach and citrus notes with lots of soft stone on the finish.

An amazing wine from 80y old, ungrafted vines, spontaneously fermented. White peaches & herbs, with a whiff of Mediterranean shrub & pine wood in the hot sun. Quite broad on the nose, on the palate unmistakably volcanic, tightly wound around a core of mineral acidity, with some bitter almond in the finish and lovely salinity. The wood gives a nice backdrop to the wine’s structure. This is soo good!

Powerful yet with elegance and immense freshness. Smoky minerality, yellow citrus, toast, red apples, sea weed and chalk.
